Focus 1.8 Tddi - Turbo Noise

16 November 2013 - 06:38 PM



I've bought Ford Focus 1.8 TDDI Ghia from 2000. I had already some issues, but hopefully fixed.

I've managed to change oil and filters so I've went for some drive testing.


I've noticed that my Turbo (is it?) gives noise, similar to that:



It happens when you start to accelerate hardly.

When it start to squeak you can just have revs stabilized on e.g 2k RPM and it still squeaks.

You need to push clutch so engine will idle and squeak stops.


Squeak it's not related with engine RPMs. I think it's related with turbo blowing, because when it squeaks even if you make your engine revs higher, squeak have same pitch.


Do you have idea is it faulty turbo? (Another thing that previous seller forgot to tell about).

... I hope that there is air leak or something, but it's not whistle it's like squeak... 

Focus 1.8 Tddi - Major Oil Leak From Right Side Of Engine

10 November 2013 - 06:59 PM



I've just bought a Ford Focus, however I've just realized about some issues.

There is major oil leak from the right side of engine. Possibly it leaks only when engine is running, because there when car was not running I did not see many oil dots increase on the ground.


I don't know if it's leaking from engine or just from some hoses there?







I would like previous buyer to contribute with some costs or if it's really serious I am going to give the car back, since it was listed as good condition without listing any issues.


Do you have idea what could it be, and how much it could cost to repair?


I would appreciate any kind of advice about that.


2. Also I could not find any service manual to check what's there.

Maybe do you have link to one of this?
